"Before this case I had associated cannibalism with eras long gone, with the tale of Robinson Crusoe. No longer.
"You have plumbed depths rarely encountered in our court."
As Judge Stewart set out how long Morley would spend behind bars, there was applause from the public gallery and a shout of "murderer".
Morley, who won the first Mr Gay UK title in 1993 had previously had some kind of relationship with openly gay Mr Oldfield, the court was told, and the pair had arranged to meet on the day of the murder.

They later went back to Morley's house, where the defendant prepared a meal for them both before the pair went upstairs to his bedroom.
Morley later walked into a nearby takeaway wearing a bloodstained dressing gown and flip-flops and told staff and police he had killed someone because he tried to rape him.
During the trial, Morley said he could not remember killing Mr Oldfield, who sold advertising space for gay lifestyle magazine Bent, or any of his subsequent actions.
He had denied murder on the grounds of provocation or diminished responsibility.
